After ongoing questions surrounding West Village mainstay Left Bank Books’ future, the shop will officially open up at 17 Eighth Avenue between 12th and Jane streets, after leaving its current home at 304 West 4th Street near the corner of Bank Street Jan. 31.

In Brooklyn, a new supermarket, Grand Bazaar, has planned to have its soft opening at 2424 Coney Island AvenueNear Avenue U in Sheepshead Bay next month. Bushwick will soon welcome a new clothing boutique called the Loom on Flushing Avenue between Knickerbocker and Irving avenues. The New York City Parks Department is reportedly in search of someone to operate a restaurant at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 in Cobble Hill.

Amid these openings, there were some closings. The Telephone Bar and Grill at 149 Second Avenue between 9th and 10th streets, an East Village mainstay for approximately 22 years, plans to shutter at the end of the month. Also in the East Village, a few blocks away, the Sea Thai Bistro at 75 Second Avenue between 4th and 5th streets has shuttered.
Julius, the oldest continuously operated gay bar in New York City, has been shut down by the Department of Health at 159 West 10th Street near the corner of Waverly Place in the West Village, for as-of-now unknown violations. In Park Slope, sushi eatery Yamato Restaurant at 168 Seventh Avenue between 1st Street and Garfield Place has reportedly closed for renovations, with plans to reopen in the near future. In Greenpoint, Socrates, an eatery at 651 Manhattan Avenue, has recently shuttered.
